The lecture series, created by Father Fortin, was called "Perspectives". Its intention was to teach the best undergraduate professors how to bring the works of the greatest minds (Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Rousseau, Nietzsche etc) to this newest generation of students. The problems of this most recent generation were later to be explored...

This lecture was delivered at Boston College in 1983 to a small group for a series entitled "Philosophic Perspectives". It was intended to explore great philosophic works with a view to how they should be taught to undergraduates. The theme of the seminar was conceived in light of the decline & fall of liberal education in the University. In this lecture Bloom discusses Nietzsche's rejection of liberal democracy, contemporary nihilism, the Last Man, and the Will to Power. Bloom...

Martin Heidegger's [in]famous "Rectoratsrede" or "Rector's inaugural address", given in 1933. A careful reading of this speech is essential for anyone trying to understand the early philosophy of Heidegger, and why he eventually withdrew from politics. Leo Strauss' essays entitled "Existentialism" and "German Nihilism" should be read in conjunction with this speech.

Edmund Husserl Ideas, Volume One.(1913) Translated into English. This work is the true foundation of phenomenology as the transcendental science of pure consciousness; it becomes the foundational science of all sciences, allegedly replacing all metaphysics, or "first philosophy". Husserl struggled with and profoundly explored the Cartesian postulate of the ego, single-mindedly probing its enigmatic conundrums in an effort to give a perfectly lucid and precise account of what...

2 selections from Husserl's work on the crisis of the meaning of science for life. This is quite possibly the most important work Husserl ever wrote. Husserl's phenomenological analysis ended in the radical analysis of the whole development of modern science.The sections given here indicate the fundamental problem, the historical approach to its elucidation, and the discovery of Descartes as the pivotal figure who originated the essential character of modern scientific & philosophic...

A group of essays written by Leo Strauss, originally published separately. These essays confront either explicitly or indirectly the radical historicism of Martin Heidegger. Strauss presents the classical idea of the philosophic life over against Heidegger's committed and spirited kind of "thinking" and his conscientious, single minded reflections on man's finitude and the abyss (i.e. Dasein, authentically experienced). Strauss also, in the essay entitled "Existentialism",...

Allan Bloom's analysis of the incoherence of Fukuyama's popular & popularized hypothesis after the fall of the Soviet Union and collapse of the Warsaw pact. Bloom shows that Fukuyama has synthesized two notions derived from the thought of Nietzsche and Hegel which contradict one another, forming a nonsensical, not to say highly unpolitical, picture of our situation. Fukuyama seems to celebrate and deplore the victory of liberal democracy in the same breath. There is also a brief discussion...
